My Stage2 experience

All I have to say is, Wow!! I uploaded the Stage2 map and drove conservatively for about 15 miles. I then opened it up and was blown away. My engine feels a lot more smoother on the top end and pulls harder than what I was expecting. Going to do some datalogging tonight and see how everything is going.

In addition, I have been getting 25.8 mpg on the freeway. Not only am I getting amazing power out of stage2 but, the gas mileage has improved as well.

I went from stock to stage 2. My only mods are Cobb short shifter with Kartboy bushings, K&N drop in filter, and Invidia Q300 turboback exhaust. All I have left are springs. I want to keep stock height but stiffer springs.

You need a turbo back exhaust, or a cat back exhaust with your choice of a downpipe, and the access port to go stage two.

Your OTS stage2 map isn't going to adjust for it, causing you to run lean. You need a Protune for the intake modification.

Here is my datalog, running Stage2 91ACN High Wastegate. Everything looks fine to me. I'm not seeing where I am running lean. I figure running a tad bit lean would increase power. Can you guys take a look and let me know if you see anything i'm not seeing. Any help would be appreciated.

I just wrote and sent Cobb my datalog and they said the drop in filters are either a hit or miss. They looked at my datalog and said the drop in is a hit in my case. I'm psyched about it. I'm wanting to keep the look of stock in the engine bay, with the exception of my pully's when I get them.

Good plan for a practical ride height and to preserve tire clearance.
